My early J-Town memories


Aoi Restaurant

I don't remember us going to eat anywhere except for Aoi Restaurant on First Street. I've been going there since I was a little kid, and it always feels a little like coming home whenever I step inside. I couldn't even think of trying to figure out how many meals I've eaten there.

The owners are two sisters, and they remember my relatives and me whenever we come in. It's so welcoming and comforting that they still remember my grandmothers, both of who passed away so many years ago.

So, that's my collection for now. I hope you enjoyed taking a trip through my memories with me. I'm hoping to find or take more photos to represent a few other favorite stops. When I do, I'll be sure to add them to this collection.
